20 Best Nintendo Switch Games Of 2017

20. ARMS

Arms Switch
Nintendo

Starting with essentially Nintendo's new-age version of Punch-Out!!, ARMS really comes to life once you take it online.

Predicated on the same one-on-one principals as those age-old NES/SNES classics (with the scope to take place in four-way battle royales), ARMS' blend of dodges, parries and extend-o-punches is designed to be one elegant ballet of traded blows and meticulous positioning to gain the upper hand.

When it all comes together there's a feeling of pure sky-punching joy to dismantling an opponent one satisfying haymaker at a time, and though ARMS lacks meaningful progression outside of indulging in and mastering its mechanics, there's still a lot to love.
